Welcome to the
Milk Ads Clearing House
Inside you'll find the most complete reference guide to the 'got milk' advertising campaign on the internet. Many website collections have come and gone through the years but none have ever encompassed the breadth of the campaign as presented here.
The California Milk Processing Board started the 'got milk' campaign in 1994 using the advertising firm Silverstein, Godby & Lowe. The national milk campaign started releasing magazine ads in February 1995 under the tagline 'Milk - What a Surprise!'. After about 18 months this tagline was replaced with 'Milk - Where's your mustache?'. Eventually this too morphed into the current and more widely recoginzed 'got milk?'; with the tagline 'got chocolate milk?' thrown in occasionally to spice things up. Since the first magazine ad was released in 1995, there have been over 300 'official' magazine ads and countless parodies. This site is dedicated to presenting the milk campaign in as complete of fashion as possible. Included will be magazine ads, other campaign related materials, parodies, and eventually television commercials.
This reference guide is based primarily on my collection of ads from the milk advertising campaign. You will also find ads and materials that I don't have in my physical collection, but do exist out there... somewhere. I'm always looking to trade or buy what I don't have.
Am I missing something from the listing? Let me know and send me a picture, so I can add it to the guide. I'll give full credit to all submissions. If you have extras, maybe we can work out some kind of trade or sale. Let us try to build something lasting for future milk ad collectors. Your support and contributions will always be appreciated and welcome. Enjoy the site and if you have any questions or comments, email me.
